How many kilojoules of energy are released from the carbon carbon single bonds when Glucose (C6H12O6) is burned?
how would i do this?
Look up the bond energy for C-C bond and multiply by 5.
okay, but why would i multiply by 5?
Aren't there C-C bonds? Glucose isn't a linear molecule but if it were, it would be C-C-C-C-C-C so five bonds hold it together. Here is the glucose molecule.
